The big evil villain of this season’s The Mandalorian has yet to be revealed, although we’re already halfway through the show. Numerous fan theories have been proposed, but nothing has been officially announced.
However, Moff Gideon has been the show’s primary nemesis from the get-go, thus he stands out as the most plausible bad guy. He’s an ex-Imperial officer who participated in the Mandalorian Purge and now wants to use Baby Yoda’s Force skills to take over the galaxy. Gideon was beaten and handed over to the New Republic, but he probably won’t go gently into that good night.
Grand Admiral Thrawn, a villain from the Star Wars Expanded Universe noted for his tactical acumen, is another possibility. Although he has not yet made an appearance on The Mandalorian, his presence is eagerly anticipated by viewers.
No of what occurs, viewers are looking forward to finding out how the rest of the season plays out and who the real villain is. We’ll have to keep guessing and enjoying the antics of our favorite bounty hunter and his lovable companion until we find out for sure.
